Canadiens never quit.
Give them that.
With a shortened bench, playing their second game in two nights, they made a third-period game of it.
But the D was dreadful.
horseshoes, grenades AND curling…
Gomex sucks. He sucks making 7.5 and he would still suck if he made 1.5. He’s soft, he contributes nothing to the offense and he’s a liability defensively. I’ll be glad when he’s gone and his apologists move on to someone else.
JM presser: Good team coming off some tough losses. They were fully ready for tonight’s tilt.
Question for our bilingual readers: Why wasn’t our freakin’ genius ready?
The PP goal was because Plekanec left his usual position on the blue line. He took over from the side boards (which is where he should be), made the play to Cammy who passed it to Gio. Gomez was on the ice for the group hug.
Your highest paid players have to be your best or most valuable. How long does this organization wait?
Let me see if I understand…..
So, in full tweak mode, Eller is sent out with Patch and DD. The young stud make a gorgeous play, set up the first goal.
Then what ? got benched ?………what ? To come back with Mathieu ”Jessica-don’t-like-my-PP” Darche and Travis ”Soft-hand” Moen….
PK is only on the PP with 30 secs remaining……
And Diaz is on duty for the last minute with an empty net……
Only in the System does this make any kind of sense.
Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture
JM is losing it, he needs to be replaced asap.
I wish Gomes would just get a season ending injury! Seriously just when eller gets going Gomes comes back and JM is giving him the ice time. Brutal!!! I don’t know who drives me crazier JM or GOmes
If Price played, and he should have, we woulda won this game.
What’s the point of having a backup if you don’t use him in the second of back-to-backs against the second lowest scoring team in the league?
Budaj played the game BEFORE Price got a shut out if im not mistaken? We need poitns vs teams we should beat, and look what happens, Budaj didnt do it and we lost 2 points.
You would be mistaken it was TWO games before. Do you really want Price to play Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday?
YES, its the ONLY way this team wins with this POS coach makign bad call after bad call
No wonder you don’t like the coach, you think the starter should play all 82 games.
gomez can be the water boy for now on
I hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”
Love the half-baked pissing and moaning about Martin and his coaching.
My bet is, 99% of any other coach in the NHL would do the same thing line combowise given the circumstances.
You really sure about that?
Name me another coach that woulda put Gomez out when its important that we score a goal?
Oh wait, none.
What makes you so sure of that Because you personally wouldn`t?
The fact its been almost a year since this good for nothing crappy player has scored a goal, and he left his playmaking ability in Jersey, hell all he does is skate around and give up the puck.
You need to either stop doing drugs or fully embrace alcohol!
Or vice versa?
So we let the Isles get their 5th win of the year…..pathetic
Gomez – 1 no points 16 mins
Eller 1 point -1 12 min
Ya your an F’ing amazing coach JM
Can’t believe Gomez has over a minute shift at the end of that one.
OK, now on to the Jm presser. Stop comparing this retard franchise to the Yankees!
They did it again. Sleep walked through most of the game and came up short. Nice work.
And this against a team that’s going nowhere… again…
I’d buy the whole ‘2 games in 2 nights’ angle and the ‘they never quit’ or ‘they ran into a hot goalie’, but they sat on their arses for a good chunk of the game and gave it away.
They were only allowed to crawl back in because the Isles lack discipline.
Honestly I think you’re whining.
Yep. You’re right.
So I guess you’re a fan of what we saw tonight. Cool. Way to take the high road homes.
Just when you think this team might be on the right track,there is a major train wreck fire the coach.
Too little. Too late.
Worthless team. Even more worthless coach. Ah well… mediocre through and through. No surprises.
Barring a miracle, we’re gonna become the Chicago Cubs of hockey in a few decades.
Couldn’t’ve asked for a better opportunity at the end there…
Back from the Brink’s boasts L. B. Potter, esq.
Too little too late
This team sucks largely because their coaching sucks. And, make no f’n mistake, Martin doesn’t just suck, he freakin’ blows!!!
The NYI feed is pronouncing Gorges as “gorgeous”
Opinions are like kittens, I’m giving them away.
Well have you seen the guy! 😉 nohomo
Attaboy Jacques, call a timeout with 7 seconds left, we’re gonna win the game right here.
why are you allowed to curse here yet others get banned for it?
Please stop playing Gomer. Please.
Gomez and his impossible passes.
And Gomez is our clutch player so he should be on the ice the last 20 seconds
You know what I hate, crybabies who give up on a game before its over. Its the main reason why Boone is in a box living vicariously through people who know how to work hard.
Given the facts. You know when it’s over. Miracles don’t happen every night. Same way our goalie can’t stop every single shot every time. It’s the reality of it all which you seem to miss really.
Screw that. Losers give up, winners play to win til the buzzer goes. I hate losers.
Winners would glue Gomez’ ass to the bench and not dress him next game.
Whats with the hate on Boone?
I’ve been on a lot of winning teams, and I’ve been on a lot losing teams and I know that the number one killer for any team is negativity. Whether its from fans, players, or sports reporters. Being negative has never and will never help a team win. I hate losing, and I hate people who give up
Let’s strap it on and win this game!
C’mon Jacques get that number 11 back on the ice NOW
Isles’ announcers, “Gorgeous on defense!”
Two more goals and we are out of here.
Oh oh maybe JM has it right people. Turn to more offensive style in last 5 mins 2 goals down. Wohoa! that notepad might be working people!
Oh my god Eller is not benched anymore! wow BOW TO THE NOTEPAD!
take your drink to the end of the bar buddy…come on now, don’t be a fool…
Not really about the “game” tonight…
Of the current players within the Habs organization name 6 players you’d like to see suiting up for the Habs regularly five years from now.
Mine are Price, Subban, Plekanec, Pacioretty, Tinordi, Cammalleri.
Well, hey, waddya know!
I blame Gionta.
The Captain leads the charge.
That’s good on him, but the team sucks tonight!
Plecks on the first PP wave again, since its SOOO FRIGGIN AMAZING.,
JM HAS TO BE FIRED
Plecks and GOMEZ, wow
Darche is gonna break this sucker wideeeeeeeeeeeee open!
Those who adhere to the bilingual thing really have to get over it. I mean is it really that important that the coach can do a Maurice Chevalier “Thank Heavens for little trade?”
Eller, Moen and Darche
Another prime example that JM is the greatest coach in the nhl, its not like Eller didnt setup a goal tonight
And Gomez gets promoted again and is minus 2?
When will you JM lovers realize how much of a mistake each and every game PG lets JM coach? wow
Hey, Gomez had a SOG!
Where the heck has Eller been until two minutes ago?
Uh, why was Eller benched though?
Full Breezer 4 Life
Well well well. Eller is out there with Moen and Darche. Oh what’s that, a sting cycle that draws a penalty??? Interesting…..
Please put Subban on first! PLEASE
I hate how eller is always with the worst players
Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness was
Martin is a horse$&@” coach
Cammy Cammy Cammy wide open net and you fook it up
i say the canadiens create a new number one line. Darche Gomez and Weber, and JM can play them 40 minutes a game
OH, THE GREAT GOMER! Look at that sucker fly to nowhere!!
HOW DID YOU MISS THAT!
Well, this ain’t gonna work out…..
OK, let’s do the yank-a-round for ten minutes!
We need a legitimate sniper. Not to score goals…. but to snuff out Jacques Martin
It’s time to send Morticia to Hamilton.
If they score on this pp it’s they’re back in it
Desharnais may not win every battle but he makes a ton of good stuff happen out there.
Gomez on the first wave wouldn’t surprise me.
When will the Plekanec on the point experiment end.
Wouldn’t say no to a goal on this powerplay, I don’t mind tellin yehs.
It’s now or never
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Don’t get any sort of feeling that someone is gonna step up and bring us back in this one.
nice pass Plekanec…you pussy
just what we need……more Darche…less Cole….JM is a genius
J. Carter wants out of Columbus, what/who would it take to get to Montreal?
Why oh why oh why doesn’t JM play Eller more this period?? Put him with Cole and Patches for one shift PLEASE!!!
Hey Boone-Stop ragging on Budaj,the last goal was tipped by Subban,the ,he held them in in the 1st periodm=,they left him out to dry on several of those goals.You are such a damm whiner
Call me flatulent, but my ass has more momentum that the Habs!
The Price is Right
Oh Mike, this is sooooo brutal. A great came against a decent but struggling team and we can’t beat one of the worst teams in the league. Budaj may be a nice guy, but he simply sucks. Two decent games to now and we see his real side. The D is one big hole. I stopped watching MSG+. Couldn’t take it anymore just like you said, anyone think they’ll come back? Nope, that is the problem with our team. It seems no heart. Who cares about Gill. He has lead in his skates. . The young guys need a couple of years, so we’ll have a couple more of these up and down middling years until we can find SCORERS! We can’t score when we need to. Sorry guys. One good game does not a comeback make. This game was a gimme.
Promote the Youth, Support From The Veterans and Remember the Heritage!
4 players already back in their end, you know your offensive strategy sucks when…..
I think Gomez should start pricing condos in Hamilton.
Like Joe Stalin once said, “For some persons, four walls are three too many!”
I hope you guys have the time of your lives at the Summit Saturday night, but I think it may be found at the bottom of a bottle. The Rags are gonna beat the crap out of these knuckleheads!
Matt Moulson needs to be a Hab. Wonder if he would drop the U??
@Boone, are you calling the 4th goal a weak goal? Wow. A rocket deflection into the top corner. WEAK goal. That’s absurd.
